Building an LGB&T Voice into Health and Social Care Planning Systems

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 10:15

The National LGB&T Partnership is a partnership of eleven LGB&T organisations across England working together to reduce health inequalities and challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia within public services. 

The Partnership has just published two new resources aimed at supporting local LGBT organisations to push for further engagement from commissioners and those involved in policy development.

The first of these titled “LGB&T Priorities: Building an LGB&T Voice into Planning Systems” is aimed at local commissioners and policy development team and focusses on six priority areas. Each of these has been produced into a 2 page briefing which the Partnership hopes LGBT organisations can use to complement their own influencing.

This can be downloaded from the National LGB&T Partnership website here.

The second resource is titled “LGB&T Priorities: Building a Case for Support” and is aimed at local LGBT organisations giving them information on the health and social care system, key policy areas and top tips for influencing and engaging.

The hope is these resources will be useful for pushing for greater involvement of LGBT communities in local planning and decision making and encourage organisations to disseminate to their local commissioners.

This can be downloaded from the National LGB&T Partnership website here.
